Leasingham Show update:

Show Efforts see more than £700 Donated to Local Good Cause

A huge thank you to our enthusiastic friends and colleagues along with the all the show visitors who made our 2nd Lincoln Orchid enthusiasts a fantastic event raising £739.50, for the Lincs/Notts Air Ambulance service.

The 2nd Lincolnshire Orchid Show, held at Leasingham Village Hall on Saturday October 5 attracted 210 visitors who were treated to stunning flower displays, along with a magnificent selection of plants from multiple RHS Gold Medal Winners Craig House Cacti.

Not to forget the delicious homemade cakes, fine food fare and other treats which were also available to keep all the helpers and visitors sustained throughout the day!

East Midlands Orchid Society were awarded the Best Species and Best Hybrid in show with fabulous displays also from the Hinckley & District Orchid Society and the North East Orchid Society. The Lincs/Notts Air Ambulance were also represented.

“We couldn’t have run this show without the wonderful support from our friends and colleagues in the orchid and plant world and from the local community,” said Laurence Hobbs, who along with business partner Sandra Holland co-owns the Sussex-based orchid business.

“With so many to thank for their efforts, from manning the displays, the kitchen and doors, we would like to mention especially, Tony and Liz, Geoff, Margaret, Don and Mary, Keith and Yvonne for mustering all the hard-working volunteers as well as pitching in themselves. Also to Stan and Vicky from Craig House; Stuart and Fiona from the North East Society; and to Paul for his help with the hall and announcements. A wonderful day enjoyed by all.”

The Donation for the Air Ambulance Charity was raised through entrance tickets, tombola and from food and drinks. Along with the £448 raised at the inaugural event last year, donations to the charity so far have exceeded £1180.

The next show is scheduled for Saturday Oct 3rd 2020 at the Leasingham Village Hall, Chapel Lane, NG34  8LB. We will be looking forward to welcoming all this year at hopefully, a virus free time. Please keep checking back on our website in case of changes.
